Surprisingly tough – M16 Gun Rail Mount Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This is quite an amazing piece of kit. Alignment with handle is straight and the nut seems to stay tight unlike in many other, much more expensive mounts.
Cons:
See-through for iron sights. Fits Colt upper perfectly but Bushmaster is a bit tight fit, Stag and M1S (mfg?) are slightly loose. Doesn't fit .32ACP Adler/Jäger rifles.
Other:
I tried the mount on a custom 18"/c-stock .458 SOCOM (a real bigbore thumper, no airsoft toys here), which recoils quite a bit more than .223/5.56. The scope is Nikon Monarch 3-9x40 on Weaver low rings.
To my surprise, the mount held up very well. The heavy-ish scope stayed put, screw needed only initial tightening and there's really nothing a $100 'real' mount does that this one doesn't equally well.
Bottomline:
Highly recommended. I ordered three and now I'm back for more.
